"I think it just goes to show that
students were happy with our perfor-
mance during the past year and that
they saw the improvements that we
made and they wanted to continue to
move forward," Greenberg said.
Despite their losses, other candi-
dates for president accepted defeat gra-
ciously.
Businessjunior Devon Bodoh ran
forpresidentunder the Students' Party.
"The Students' Party worked very
hard and I'm proud of the entire party.
We stood for what we believed in and
never backed down," Bodoh said. "I'd
like to congratulate Julie Neehan. Un-
fortunately, I think the assembly is in
for another year of politics as usual. I
hope Julie can break that."
Moeller, who ran for president with
the Outsider Party, was the founder of
largest new party on the ballot. Yester-
day, Moeller said the party will disband
Besides the unofficial results of the
presidential election, the election staff
finished counting the ballot questions.
Students voted to support the elec-
tion of a student to serve on the Univer-
sity Board of Regents in at least anon-
voting capacity by a 93.8-percent vote.
However, only the regents can add
an ex-officio member to their board.
Several ballot questions stemmed
from anger intheassembly when Vice
President for Student Affairs Maureen
A.4Hartford offered Greenberg and
Kight $2,500 tuition waivers.
In the questions, students over-
whelmingly opposed paying student
leaders in any way.
Students voted 66 percent against a
constitutional question that would al-
low the assembly to provide financial
.,compensation for its members, offic-
4ers oremployees.
By a 69.5-percent vote, students
said a fund should not be established to
.provide scholarship and/or tuition waiv-
ers for student leaders, including the
MSA president and vicepresident. The
,,next question, which asked if this money
,could come directly from the Univer-
sity, failed as well, with 70 percent of
the voters against it.

DAILY STAFF REPORTER
A University law student was ar-
rested yesterday morning for trespass-
ing and forcibly removed from Lee
Bollinger's office.
The incident began when the stu-
dent appeared in the secretary's of-
fice and demanded to speak to the
Law school dean.
"I was extremely busy," Bollinger
said in a brief interview last night,
"but I went out to meet to him in the
hall."
According to Bollinger, the stu-
dent wanted to discuss the Law
school's Public Interest Office, which
the student believed was going to be
closed.
The office was implemented as a
pilot program this year to serve as a
resource for students interested in jobs
in the public sector: Last month,
Bollinger decided to continue the pro-
gram, which essentially consists of
one staff person, and posted the job

opening.
However, he explained that as next
year's budget took shape, he decided
to maintain the office's temporary
status and allow the incoming dean to
make the final decision. Bollinger has
resigned from his post and will be
replaced in the fall.
"I explained that he was wrong,
and that I'd be glad to have him make
an appointment to see me," Bollinger
said.
The student reportedly demanded
to see the dean instantly, claiming it
was his right. "He was fairly offen-
sivein his language," Bollinger added.
After attempting to explain the
situation, Bollinger said he returned
to his office, but the student followed
him and began pounding on his closed
door.
"I was annoyed," the dean said,
adding that the student's behavior was
bullying.
Bollinger then came out of his
office and asked the student to leave,

bly, party founder Trevor Moeller said
the party has been disbanded.
"We don't want to walk into MSA
as a segregated party," Moeller said.
"We want to walk in as just people. I'm
sure they'll work well with everyone at
MSA, including (MSA President-elect
Julie Neenan)."
Moeller said Outsider Party candi-
dates will serve as independents.
For the upcoming term, Moeller
said he does not know what his in-
volvement will be in MSA.
"I haven't made up my mind now,"
Moeller said. "Right now I want to take
a break from MSA and decide later."
MSA Vice President-elect Jacob
Stern said it is a shame Moeller is
disbanding the party.
"He seemed to put a lot of workj to
it and its too bad he's totally giving up,"
Stern said.
Neenan said she is excited about
serving on the assembly with the can-
didates elected fromtheOutsiderParty.
"I think the Outsiders had a lot of

good people running and I look for-
ward to working with them," Neenan
said.
Students' Party presidential candi-
date Devon Bodoh said his party will
remain involved in the assembly and
run in the fall.
"We think there are some key is-
sues that brings the entire party to-
gether," Bodoh said. "I don't think
because we had a disappointing out-
come, the party will disband."
The Michigan Party's dominance
on MSA will hurt the student
government's effectiveness, Bodoh
said."The assembly will become nearly
a dictatorship and their agenda will be
pushed through," Bodoh said.
But Stern said the amount of inde-
pendents will bringmore views toMSA.
"You'll have so many people who are
independents and they won't have any
one kind of platform," Stern said.
Current MSA President Craig
Greenberg said the change is signifi-
cant for the assembly.
"I think it certainly shows the eraof
two-party partisanship on MSA is.

vised by all major networks - started
at 7:30 much and continued past the 8
start time of the basketball game.
LSA junior Jon Stross said, "I
was watching the Simpsons on Fox
and in between commerials I flipped
to, CBS to watch the game, but the
press conference was still going on."
The press conference extended
past the 8 p.m. game time.
LSA junior Robert Feng said, "I
thought it was funny that Clinton
talked about the basketball game. He
apparently wanted the press confer-
ence to end before 8 o'clock."

"There was no analysis about the
press conference by Dan Rather. CBS
cut right to the game after the press
conference," he added.
Other students expressed indiffer-
ence to the president's press confer-
ence.
"I knew about the press confer-
ence, but I didn't think it was worth
watching. The whole issue of
Whitewater seems so removed from
my life," said Inteflex sophomore
Varissa Boriboon.
Students who did watch the press
conference gave the president mixed
reviews.
LSAseniorBill Lowry, statechair
of the College Republicans, said, "I

but, according to the dean, the student
refused and "was quite obnoxious."
Bollinger then called the Depart-
ment of Public Safety (DPS).
"In my view there was a real risk
that this could get out of hand rather
quickly," he said.
Three officers arrived shortly
thereafter and attempted to get th
student to leave on his own.
"The officers attempted to reason
with him," said DPS Sgt. Robert
Neumann.
However, the student would not
leave. Eventually, he was arrested for
trespassing and carried from the room.
"He went limp and had to be carried
out," Neumann reported.
The student was later released
after his arrest was processed. Po
lice would not release the student's
name. If the prosecutor's office de-
cides to pursue the case, the student
will be tried in 15th District Court
for trespassing, which is a misde-
meanor.
think he got carried away. Usually
press conferences last only about 1
minutes. He went on fo more than 4
minutes."
"The press conference was an at-
tempt at damage control," Lowry said.
"It was reminiscent of Watergate."
Feng said he felt the president did
a good job fielding questions from the
media.
"Clinton didn't seem to avoid
any of the questions and he was very
straightforward about his concer
with the coverage of Whitewater,"
he said."Clinton looked good. He was
joking around throughout the press
conference and he seemed to be in a
jovial mood."
"Freedom is one of the principal
values of Passover," said LSA junior
Bill Plevan, a memberof the Havural*
Some students expressed their
feelings that it will be hard to follow
the holiday's guidelines while living
on campus.
"I will try to clean my kitchen but
have non-Jewish roommates so there
will definitely be bread in the house,"
said LSA senior Beth Cousens.
Rhondi Keller, an LSA junior, also
showed concern with keeping in tradi-
tion of the holiday.
"It's going to be really difficult to
keep Passover here. My staple food-
pasta- will be gone," Keller said.
to re-encode her student ID card. She
said she thinks "it will be a big incon-
venience forcurrent students."
From April 14-28, students leaving
Ann Arbor for the summer should ei
ther turn theircards in to theirresidence
hall front desks or to one of the Entree
offices. Between May 15 and June 3Q,
the Entree Office will re-encode stu-
dent IDs with new ID numbers and
mail the cards to their homes or for-
warding addresses.
For those staying in Ann Arbor,
the Entree Office will be re-encod-
ing cards all summer long. The pro-
cess takes about five minutes.
Durst suggests that as soon as
students are done using their cars
for the last time that they should
turn them into the Entree Office. "If
students don't turn them in, then
their cards won't work this coming
fall," he added.

MSA's executive officers should re-
ceive financial compensation for their

positions, failed, with 78.3 percent of

here for those students who decide to
remain on campus.
The Housing Office will compen-
sate students who opt out of their board
contracts in the residence halls. "Al-
though there are no kosher for Pass-

Another alternative for students is
eating at either Hillel or the Chabad
House.
Michael Brooks, director of Hillel,
said during the week of Passover, Hillel
will serve more than 1,000 meals. If
students want to attend seders, they
will also be matched up with families
living in the Ann Arbor or Detroit area.
"What students need the most is
kosher for Passover food. We also
provide materials for those who want
to hold their own Seders on campus,"
Brooks said.
The Reform Havurah is holding a
vegetarian seder that is focusing on
freedom and social justice issues.

added.
When told about the new card, LSA
sophomore Lora Fallon thought the
plans for the card sounded great. How-
ever, she was not very excited about
having to learn a new ID number.
"I have mixed feelings about the
new system," she said. "I don't want to
have to learn a new student ID num-
ber."
The drop-off process seems to be
the easiest way to make the transition
to the new ID system. The Housing
Division wants to avoid students hav-
ing to wait in long lines to have their
cards re-encoded.
"We want to inconvenience the stu-
dents as little as possible," Durst said.
